KidSpirit's Spring Issue Features Youth Writing, Art, Poetry, and Film on Society and the Individual
Each issue of KidSpirit revolves around a Big Question posed by the all-youth Editorial Board. This season the editors ask, "Is Fairness Worth Sacrificing for Equality?" To respond, a teen from Beijing and North Carolina takes a close look at one highly relevant and personal example, the college admissions process.
Other pieces released this week include a Pakistani writer's exploration of the causes and implications of violence; a young New Yorker's reflection on finding meaning in a valuable teaching from her Jewish background; a Canadian author's story about a school club that helped her find self-confidence;
All spring, KidSpirit will continue to publish writing, poetry, artwork, and video by youth on this issue's complex theme. One Feature article will examine how social media has reshaped our interactions, and another will weigh the possibility of a worldwide global society. Awesome Moments pieces will explore the insights contributors have gleaned from their life experiences, while essays in the Interfaith Connections department will continue to reveal how our backgrounds and practices impact our relationships.
Each issue of KidSpirit features additional wisdom from one adult with expertise in the theme in a column called PerSpectives. Later this spring, Courtney E. Martin, respected author and speaker with expertise in social change, will contribute her insight in an interview with a teen member of the organization Girls for a Change.
KidSpirit is a unique forum for young people of all backgrounds and traditions to explore life's big questions in an open spirit. For interviews and further information, please contact Justine Woods at the information below.
